Workshop: Building a World-Class Elevator Pitch to Drive Improved Communication Outcomes

James McGovern, Sr Director Analyst, Gartner

When improperly communicated, EA efforts generate confusion and can damage morale. In this workshop, we will provide a framework for EA leaders to improve (or create) 30-second elevator pitches using Gartner’s own techniques! This is a very rare opportunity for EA leaders to test and validate their pitch with peers outside their company creating new connections at this conference and beyond.

Never Mind the Robots, It’s the People You Have to Worry About

Marcus Blosch, VP Analyst, Gartner

As we invent ever more clever technologies there is always the risk that they will go out of control. Science and engineering have little to say on values and ethics. But as our technology becomes more sophisticated, we need to be clearer about the values and ethics, and architect those in to our technologies.

Ask the Expert: Moving the Needle: A Discussion on Diversity and Inclusion

James McGovern, Sr Director Analyst, Gartner

Historically, IT has struggled with diversity and inclusion at all levels of leadership. Many corporate IT departments have normalized superhuman efforts, and the staff has cast itself in the metaphorical language of superheroes which may discourage women in particular from choosing a technology career path or staying on that path for very long. During these discussions, attendees will engage in open discussion with fellow attendees to share their personal thoughts, insights, and experiences as well as create action items that they can take away from the event to make their workplaces and neighborhoods more inclusive environments.
